Thursday 23.07.2020 at 7pm. In German.

Museion will be holding a special Long Thursday on the 23rd July at 7pm with a very particular guided tour of the “unlearning categories” exhibition featuring mycologist Ursula Peintner and curators Lisa Mazza and Simone Mair.

What are mycorrhizal fungi? How can we imagine the coexistence between different species or organisms and what has it got to do with art? The unlearning categories exhibition has been conceived by the curators as an imaginary exploration of a forest in which the public meets 60 artworks by different local artists. The special guided tour with the mycologist Ursula Peintner and the curators stimulates a conversation between natural sciences and art that passes through the different moments the exhibition is divided into. Namely: humus, in-between beings, matter, collectivity, lines, porosity, interstices, sediments and assemblages.

 

In German. Free admission
Reservation required by writing to
